This variety, Sempervivum tectorum ‘Rubin’, is a succulent that forms a distinctive mat of burgundy-red neat rosettes with tufted leaves. Sempervivums are intriguing little plants and can be grown outdoors or inside as a houseplant. 

From June – August occasional tiny pink flowers rise from the centre of the rosettes. Once the main rosette has flowered it usually fades and dies but other rosettes take over quickly. 

The common names for Sempervivum plants include houseleeks, as they were known to root on the roofs of houses.  Today they make good specimens to grow on shallow living roof displays. They are also known as Hens and Chicks, as the mother plant sends out many offsets that grow closely around her. These offsets can be replanted and grown on to form new clusters. 

The literal meaning of Sempervivum is ‘always alive’ because they are tolerant of extreme temperatures and drought which makes them very hardy if given the correct conditions.  

These sempervivum are being grown in our nursery and will be really to plant in their final position on arrival.

I was interested in getting some different colours. These are not a bright red, but not green. Some slight damage in the post, but packed very well for such awkward plants. Looking forward to some offsets once they are established
